TRS Probe Touches McCall

   This S-T article reveals that the federal investigation into the vagaries of the mammoth entity(which boasts corruption of even greater proportions) known euphemistically as "TRS," has now fingered, in the growing quagmire, HealthPoint, a firm of which H Carl McCall was once vice chairman.
   McCall has also drawn fire, on an unrelated note, for the handling of NY pension funds when he was comptroller. The state was charged large contingency fees by a firm that was representing them in a lawsuit against a private corporation. Even when one of firm's own attorneys sued her superiors to reduce them, McCall deadpanned that "the city is handling that." The firm had donated over a million to McCall's campaign.
